    Default Winter skins/models for battles during winter ?

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if you guys were thinking about maybe adding winter skins/models for some units lightly dressed (some of the Greek units for example) ? This would be a lot of work of course but I thought it would be a good idea to share it with you. Something like adding capes or furs to some existing models and making it as an additional skin that we would have to replace in the files before any winter battle. I don't know if this could work by any sort of script.

    Again, this is not a request but an idea I wanted to share and discuss about.

    What do you guys think about this ?

    The Marian Roman units do have winter skins, though none of the rest do. As you say, it would be a huge undertaking to reskin/remodel almost every unit in that way.
    It began on seven hills - a historical house-ruled Romani AAR
    Heirs to Lysimachos - a semi-historical Epeiros-as-Pergamon AAR
    Philetairos' Gift - a second attempt at an Epeiros-as-Pergamon AAR

    Besides, little fighting should take place in the winter anyway.

    I recommend a pugio rather than a spear, because in close quarters combat, a dagger will serve you better than a spear.

    I don't know how to do that. What I can try to do is to motivate/bug people into doing that I plan on playing this mod for a looooooooooooooooooooooong time, and I am sure the folks in the eb team want the same.

    You should apply for the position of "Evil Mother-in-law". That's pretty much the core skill set! Well, that and "making faces"......

    Shouldn't we rename the ancillary "Evil Mother-in-law" in honor of Rad?

    Do they only have winter skins, or do they have skins for both hot and cold weather?
